Whether it was 'to be the female of the species or just a Re publican was their uppermost thought. During A. B. Gray's tenure Carson profited, as he not only brought his own family, but his families' family. Then came the announceme? ltut Har ry Grier had landed the persimmon. Well, who is Harry Grier.? He came from Tonopah and also brought his family, and the way he has taken hold of affairs in Carson stamps him as one of the live wires this city needs. People who knew him during the Goldfield days had his qualities measured, as he became inocculated with the 1oost bug down south, and it is incurable. He is at it here in Carv son. If all of the federal plums that are shaken from the Republican tree result in additions like Harry Grier, then Carson can say, welcome the day. We have changed our minds there are some real good Republicans. a By the way, have you housewives fig ured out some of the inconsistencies of the day of getting back to normalcy? For instance, sugar is back to pre-war prices, but fruit has jumped up to a notch that would scare a war profiteer to death. If it isn't high sugar, it's higher priced fruit, so my lady is put ting off canning, waiting for the im possible lower priced fruit In a Sac ramento paper a few days ago it was stated that apricots were to be sold for 5 cents per pound; another ad quoted 7 cents and in any quantity for canning. On the same day 20 cents per pound ruled in Carson. And again what has become of the fruit peddler who used to drive a couple of Dobbins over ' from Placer ville and supply the Carsonites with some real fruit during the season. They say that the orchards over the hill are loaded to the ground" with fruit and none of it reaching here at prices al fielFinaiffli TOILVWUILIIU Hitch In Tariff By United Press WASHINGTON, June 29.

The Iowa, under radio control, is cruising about and the airplanes are attacking her with dummv bombs. Town Stuff lowing canning. It seems that with a distance of only about ninety miles between here and the fruit belt some plan could be formulated to get in touch with the growers who now have to allow it to rot on the ground. It is evident that something stronget than Tanlac is needed to brace up the city trustees on the road program. Pos sibly Lydia Pinkham's compound would fit their case. At any rate the road on Northi Carson street is "growing no better fast and the last load of dirt only-" reached half-way over the bed of rocks confronting the autoists. If the trustees are reaching for a medal for the worst piece of highway in any city they s hould be awarded the booby prize for this short section. If some of the speed bugs wish to earn the everlasting gratitude of the calm and conservative driver, he will some evening invite Denis Hurley, A. B. Gray, Theo Hawkins, Fred Frisbie and Bill Wallace into his seven pas senger machine and give them the once over on the back streets. It is an open guarantee that Hawkins will have the machine in the shop next day and that all the physicians in town will be call ed on to make minor personal repairs. It is only a suggestion. Once upon a time there was a cur few rung and the good and bad little boys hied them to their parents' domi cile. This was many years ago, ac cording to the story. When a bad lit tle boy was found out after the afore said curfew he was promptly grabbed up by one Bill Kinney, or S. T. Swift or some other sheriff or constable and promptly yanked jailward. It is said that vandalism came to a sudden and abrupt halt. Some of the boys of that day and age, remembering the effect of the curfew, have suggested in a mild, old-fashioned way that the ordinance again be enforced. Recently much has been done that has incited the ire of many heads of families. Youth has passed the point of mere pleasure, as Wats firaii Jirsi .JililtfHit Jersey Reform Bureau Seeks New Method to Stop Big Fight By United Press JERSEY -CITY, N. J., June 29.

The attornev uesl- flowers have been ruthlessly torn from their sockets, pickets have been used for bats, gardens have been tramped down and other acts that grieve the staid resident have been noted from every quarter of the city. While the curfew is an ancient and barbaric treatment, confining youth to its parent quarters in this day of liberty, yet its enforcement might be tried before some enraged citizen takes a shorter cut and fills some miscreant with a load of shot or salt. This can go along the line of suggestions both to parents and offi cers. Did you ever stop and think what ihe automobile has done for. your city and how little the people have done for the horseless carriage. Take the ma chines off Carson street and it will look like a deserted village. It is not an uncommon sight to see over 100 ma chines parked up and down the main street, each and every one being doubly taxed for the privilege of help ing tear up the roads. The county takes a tax from the owner and then George Erodigan insists they pay a li cense, and he gets it. Autos at night fairly light the streets as they go grinding out electricity and use it 'in illuminating the car ahead or the one coming On; some go so far as to annex five or six lights to make the steering more confusing. The auto has made it possible for half a dozen garage men to annex your dollars and they in turn pay a license Rockefeller needs the dividend that is exacted, and while we are at it, what's the matter with gas coming down in Carson in proportion to the late drop. Reno dropped, but Carson has not yet received the news of the decline. Boys, John D. isn't the only pirate. The Appeal took a shy glance at the decision rendered by the public ser vice commission on the. gas advance some days ago. How the pencil pusher overlooked the telephone matter is agi tating our mind. The same commission allowed the telephone company to ad vance its rates about 25 per cent and there was no criticism. The 'phone people not only received this benefit. but there has been a falling off in ser-a vis;u He and Professor McKcown vice, less help in the office and theare putting in their time talking over same old boxes that Tom Edison made his first experiments on. Someone said that they were junked in Oklahoma when the whites threw out the Indians. At any rate, these antiques arrived in Carson a quarter of a century ago and for this privilege, and then John D. people continue to ring central "twice" liefore they can get on the line. Dur- ing the noon hour one might as well ask for connection as demand a front seat at the "Follies." If the staid old Appeal really wishes to touch some thing that the whole commonwealth is sore about lake up telephone ad- torney for the bureau, said he would attempt to have the promoter, fighters and managers indicted by the grand jury. He will charge a conspiracy to hold a prize fight in violation of the state crime's law. Court llcuse Bonds Are Soldjojccal PeCe The lionds , for the Ormshy county court house, which were declined by the local bank, have been taken up by people of this city and Reno, who real ize that it is not only a safe investment, but also keeps the money working in Nevada. The county commissioners and the district attorney have been busy the past two months quietly disposing of the issue in small and large lots as oc- I " T , , .

No r J time is being lost on this contract, as Mr. Sellman has a crew working today On pipe connection and material has been ordered for the inside finish. The taking up of the bpnds locally without any noise is one of the best ad- ; vertiscments that Ormshy county has- pulled off. The confidence shown in the future of this city and the retention of the interest money at home is a feature worthy of favorable comment. The letting of the contract by the county commissioners and their work irt this connection is entitled to credit, as when the job of selling bonds wa wished on them it looked like a hard proposition. Ormsby county will soon boast of one of the finest county build ings in Nevada, as it is not 'only up to date in every detail and convenience. -but is an architectural achievement le yond the dream of those who first ad vocated the removal of the old court house and block of pioneer buildings. This, with the Memorial building, is the making of the finest civic center to be found in Nevada, and many towns of far larger population and wealth may take note. A. W. Armitage, superintendent of schools at Goldfield. is paving Carson old times. vance and system. The concern was not only granted something for nothing, but has not even promised to livtter its service, and the instruction at central cut out every accommodation that for merly went with a lower priced contract with Carson people. The old song of "Central, CWt Me Heaven," should lie transposed to the warmer spot. It is suggested that Jack Shaughnessy send one of the boxes over to Miss Elizabeth Weir at the historical build ing as the first specimen of its race.
